Many people entrust themselves to catering and food services every day. The desire for regional, seasonal, organic food in private, but also in the public sector is growing. Through this demand the public catering facilities can decisively contribute to develop the organic sector at all levels.
Cook.org are six partner organizations from five European countries cooperating to promote the integration of sustainable and healthy diet within public catering and hospitality services.
The European project „Organic Cooks in Public Settings” aims to contribute to sustainable and healthy nutrition in public catering facilities through the development of new and innovative ways of teaching and learning about organic cooking in public settings.
